Karthaveeryarjuna Ohm Namasivaya Ohm Sri Sai Ram

King Karthaveeryarjuna

King KarthaVeeryarjuna was ruling the country Kegaya with Magishmadhi city as its capital. He was fully surrendered himself to Sri Dhaththathreya ,the incarnation of Sri Vishnu.. Prayed him very sincerely and whole heartedly. Sri Thaththathreya was pleased with his sincere prayer gave him some boons. Due to the boons the king gained extra ordinary and immense powers. He got thousand hands and became a warrior with tremendous power and strength whom no body could win. Apart from these he gained fame, power, strength and unlimited wealth. With these powers he was roaming the world as a great warrior without any fear of defeat.

Once he went to river Narmadha with his wives to play water games and to bath . With his powerful thousand hands he stopped the flow of water in the river, entered the river and started playing in the water with his wives.

Without knowing this, Ravana, the king of Lanka came to the same river noted the flow in the river was very less. So he put a tent on the bank of the river and entered the river had a good bath, sat near his tent, started to perform Shiva Puja.

Karthaveeryarjuna decided to finish his water game after some time and and go back to his palace. So he he removed the blockage of water and allowed the flow in the river. The stopped water flew with great force in the river. This affected Ravana’s Shiva puja, his tent was taken away by the force of flood. Ravana was very furious at the sudden flow of water in the river. He searched for the reason and understood that it was the work of Karthaveeryarjuna. He ran towards Karthaveeryarjuna to hit him. But Karthaveeryarjuna saw Ravana came running to fight with him and smiled within himself. In his presence Ravana looked like a tiny insect. Karthaveeryarjuna lifted him with his fingers without any effort as if he was lifting a tiny creature even before he could start the fight, took him to his capital city Magishmathi and imprisoned him. Ravana had to be in the prison for many years. After some years Karthaveeryarjuna took pity on him and released him from the prison (This happened many years before Sri Rama -Ravana war)

Once Karthaveeryarjuna with some of his soldiers went to the forest for hunting. In the forest they became very tired, hungry and thirsty after running after the animals for a very long time saw a hermitage nearby; went there to get some water to drink. That hermitage belonged to hermit Jamadhakni. At that time he was alone in the hermitage, saw the king and his followers were very tired and hungry. Welcomed them and offered them sumptuous tasty feast with the help of the holy cow Kamadhenu,. The king and his followers had nice food took rest for some time and left for their city. Though they returned to the palace, the king was thinking of the Kamadhenu that she would be of more use to him in the kingdom than it was with the hermit and wondered at her power to provide and fulfill all our desire. Slowly jealous entered into his mind. After a prolonged thought he decided to bring the cow Kamadhenu to his kingdom.. He thought, If he had such an animal in his kingdom, he could provide food for every one and no one would be suffering from the disease of hunger. So he called the best of his soldiers and ordered that the holy cow Kamadhenu should be brought to the palace at any cost without fail and to use force if necessary. Though the king was aware what he intended to do was against Dharma, would have to meet dire consequences; he was very proud that no body could question or win him in fight. With that thought he decided to do such an injustice to the Rishi Jamadhakni. When the soldiers entered the ashram of the hermit only Rishi Jamadhakni was there. His sons were out on some work. So the soldiers took the holy cow Kamadhenu by force against the wish of the hermit to the king’s palace.

The sons of Rishi Jamadhakni returned back to their hermitage after some time and knew what had happened in he hermitage in their absence. Sri Parasurama the youngest of them took all sorts of weapons and ran to the palace to kill Karthaveeryarjuna and bring back the holy cow. Karthaveeryarjuna saw Sri Parasurasma, coming to fight with him. He knew Sri Parasursama was expert in using the weapons. He gathered his complete forces and stood before of Sri Parasursama. He took various kinds of weapons in all his thousand hands and fought with Sri Parasurama. Sri Parasurama stood single on the war field fought and killed thousands of the king’s soldiers.. Thee sons of Karthaveeryarjuna and the balance soldiers retreated and ran back for lives. Karthaveeryarjuna was isolated. He was alone in the war front facing Sri Parasurama. He understood using weapons against Sri Parasurama would be of no use. So he started playing trick. He plucked big trees, lifted mounts and threw at Sri Parasurama. But Sri Parasurama cut off all his thousand hands and cut off his huge head. Karthaveeryarjuna fell dead. By the time the people of Kegaya kingdom were shivering in fear as what was going to happen to them and how to escape the anger of Sri Parasurama. The sons of Karthaveeryarjuna and the people came running and handed over the holy cow Kamadhenu to Sri Parasuama and begged his pardon. Sri Parasuama pardoned them, gave them back their kingdom and left to his father’s hermitage with the holy cow.

When Sri Parasurama reached the hermitage with the holy cow his father condemned him for killing the king though what the king had done was not just. scolded him that as a Brahmin he should not have showed parience instead of killing the king

At the Kegaya kingdom the eldest son of Karthaveeryarjuna crowned himself as king absolutely because of the mercy shown by Sri Parasurama. Once crowned as king, he became very proud and head weight and decided to take revenge for his father’s death. He again marched towards the hermitage with his soldiers. At that time also the sons of Sage Jamadhakni were not in the hermitage and The sons of Karthaveeryarjuna cut off the head of the sage in the presence of his wife Renuka even while she was begging them not to kill her husband.

Ramayan - Parasurama's Discomfiture
Having thus safely handed back to Dasaratha at Mithila the princes entrusted to him in Ayodhya, and after attending the wedding celebrations, Viswamitra took leave of the two kings and went to Himalaya. In the story of Rama, Viswamitra has no further part. Viswamitra may be said to be the foundation of the grand temple of Rama's story. After Rama's wedding in Mithila, we do not see him again. It should be noted that characters that play a leading role in one canto of Valmiki almost fade out in subsequent cantos. Viswamitra who dominates the Bala Kanda does not appear again. Similarly, Kaikeyi and Guha are prominent only in Ayodhya Kanda. The same thing can be said of Bharata whom we do not come across in the chapters intervening between the Chitrakuta meeting and Rama's return to Ayodhya. The poet hardly brings Bharata before our eyes during the period of Rama's distress. The characters in Valmiki Ramayana (unlike those in the Mahabharata and in ordinary plays and novels) do not present themselves off and on. Critics should bear this general characteristic of Valmiki's epic in mind.
King Dasaratha returned to Ayodhya, accompanied by his retinue. On the way, there were bad omens and anxious Dasaratha asked Vasishtha what they portended. Vasishtha replied that there was no need to be alarmed, for though the birds in the air indicated approaching trouble, the animals on the land promised a happy consummation. As Dasaratha and Vasishtha were thus conversing, there broke out a great storm. Trees were uprooted; the earth quaked and clouds of dust went up and hid the sun and there was an all-enveloping darkness. Everyone was terror-struck. Soon they knew the reason for the strange phenomenon. There stood before them the awe-inspiring figure Parasurama, the sworn enemy of Kshatriyas, with a bow on one shoulder and a battle-axe on the other, and with an arrow shining like lightning in his hand. Terrible in appearance, with his matted locks gathered overhead, he looked like Rudra exulting in the destruction of Tripura. His face emitted flame-like radiance. The son of Sage Jamadagni struck terror among Kshatriyas, many generations of which he had annihilated. Wherever he went he was preceded by storm and earthquake. And the Kshatriya race trembled in fear. The Brahmanas in Dasaratha's retinue said to one another: "Because his father was killed by a king, Parasurama took a vow to destroy the Kshatriya race. We dared to hope that his vengeful wrath had been quenched in the blood of the innumerable kings he has slain. Has he again started his cruel campaign?" However, they honored him with the customary offering of water. After receiving it, Parasurama addressed himself to Rama: "Son of Dasaratha, I have heard of your prowess. I was somewhat surprised to learn that you strung the bow in King Janaka's court and that you drew the string till the bow broke. Here is my bow, equal in all respects to the one that you broke. This is the bow of Vishnu which was entrusted to my father. If you are able to string this bow, you will be worthy of my battle."
Dasaratha was perturbed at this turn of events and he begged that his son Rama should be spared the trial. He said to Parasurama: "You are a Brahmana. We have heard that, satiated with your revenge, you have gone back to tapas as becomes your order, in pursuance of your plighted word to Indra, after giving away the earth you had conquered to Kashyapa. Is it proper that you should break your vow, and seek to injure a prince of tender years who has done you no wrong, and who is dearer to us than life?" Parasurama heard him unmoved without so much as looking at him, and addressed himself solely to Rama, as though the others did not exist: "Viswakarma originally made two exactly similar bows. One of them was given to Rudra and the other to Vishnu. This is the one given to Vishnu. What you are said to have strung and bent to the breaking point was Siva's bow. See if you can, string this bow of Vishnu; and if you do, it will be proof of your skill and strength and I will then honor you by fighting with you." Parasurama spoke in a loud and arrogant tone. To him Rama replied in courteous manner, yet in firm tones: "Son of Jamadagni! You have been vengeful because your father was killed by a king. I do not blame you for that. But you cannot put me down as you have humbled others. Please give me your bow." So saying, he took the bow and arrow from Parasurama. He strung the bow and setting the arrow to it, drew the string. Addressing Parasurama, he said with a smile: "This mighty Vaishnava arrow placed on the string cannot be put back idly. It must destroy something. Tell me, shall it destroy your powers of locomotion, or would you rather that it consumes the fruits of your tapas?" As the son of Dasaratha strung the bow of Vishnu, the glory on Parasurama's face faded, and he stood, no longer the warlike conqueror, but a self-subdued rishi, for the purpose of the Parasurama avatar was over.
Parasurama said mildly to the Prince of Ayodhya: "I realise who you are. I am not sorry that you have quenched my arrogance. Let all my tapas go to you. But because of my promise to Kashyapa, I cannot remain in his domains and have therefore to hurry back to the Mahendra Mountains before the sunsets. Let me use my power of locomotion for this single thing. Subject to this, let the arrow which you have set to the bow consume all my power earned through tapas." So saying, Parasurama went in reverent circumambulation around the prince and departed. Ayodhya's citizens were over-joyed to hear that Dasaratha and the royal princes were returning to the capital. The city was festive with flowers and shone like the deva-loka. Rama and Sita lived happily in Ayodhya for twelve years. Rama had surrendered his heart to Sita. It was difficult for one to say whether their love grew because of their virtues or it was planted in their beauty of form. Their hearts communed even without speech. Sita, rejoicing in Rama's love, shone like Lakshmi in heaven. Long afterwards, when their forest-life began, Anasuya, the great sage Atri's holy wife, extolled Sita's love for Rama. And Sita answered: "How else could it be? Rama is a perfect being. His love for me equals mine for him. His affection is unchanging. Pure of heart, he has mastered the senses."
